And alas we have reached the end of another year. I hope your 2014 was a smashing success. Here in Hollywood, this year saw the publication of my first book, Across the Bloody Chasm and the launch of my monthly web-journal, The Americanist Independent. I guess I could say that 2014 was a spectacular year.
What’s on the agenda for 2015? Well, I’ve got an essay coming up in a book on the 1864 Overland Campaign edited by Caroline E. Janney and Gary W. Gallagher – it should be out in spring. And of course the journal is still on point. Also, I am working on a book tentatively titled, An American Racist: D. W. Griffith and the Making of the Birth of a Nation. I hope to have it done by summer. Expect some surprises.
I wish you all the very best in the upcoming year! My advice: strive for excellence, do something exceptional, and kick some serious ass.
